Overview

Taxi - The Complete First Season

After spending years as the creative head behind the landmark situation comedy The Mary Tyler Moore Show, James L. Brooks went on to create Taxi, one of the best situation comedies in this history of the format. This three-disc set offers every episode from Taxi's first season. Each is presented in the original broadcast aspect ratio of 1.33:1. English soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. The lack of any supplemental materials is something of a disappointment, but fans will appreciate having these well-crafted shows available for viewing at a moment's notice.

I'VE FORGOTTEN JUST HOW FUNNY ALL THESE CHARACTERS ARE!

Having never been a fan of Taxi, I started watching the first season with my wife(who always watched the show, even the 11PM reruns) Never have I been blown away like I did with Taxi. This show is unbelievably funny. I was addicted from go. The characters, and I mean "Characters" give us wave upon wave of side-splitting, eye watering, uncontrollable laughter. The remarks, situations, and expressions by far set this show above its peers. It's like listening to the Beatles for the first time. At my request, we ordered 2 and 3 after watching the first disc,and it only gets better.............................

Omigod! I just received the first season of Taxi on DVD that I ordered on July 12. It is GREAT to see Taxi in its uncut glory! I didn’t watch it when it was on ABC and NBC, so I’ve never seen an episode that wasn’t severely damaged by commercials. The writing is sooo good. Judd Hirsch as Alex Reiger, “the only cab driver in this place,” holds this show together, but Louie, Elaine, Bobby, Latka, Simka, Tony and Reverend Jim are essential. The show is funny, of course, but the humor comes from the characters, not from generic jokes manufactured in Mexico or wherever they’re cranked out these days. Yeah, the writers have a special pedigree, having written Mary Tyler Moore’s show, so you expect that. Unexpectedly, this show is not really about a bunch of people who drive taxis, but about family. The emotion and poignancy of many of the episodes of Taxi is an unexpected pleasure. Most of these characters are as close to real people as you'll see on a tv comedy. Watching Andy Kaufman as Latka is just a hoot. The things he does with language just make me laugh. The big difference between Taxi reruns and the DVD is that the jokes grow out of the characters in the full DVD episodes. The jokes in the reruns are funny, but I think the writers meant them to be more than just funny. It disturbs me a little to think that I’m more at home with these television characters than with many of my real friends. That’s tv addiction for ya. I don’t know a thing about transfer or that other DVD technical stuff. I do know classic tv comedy, and this is it. I can’t wait for Season Two to come out so I can watch “Reverend Jim: a Space Odyssey,” one of the all-time great television comedy episodes. No special features. So what? Doesn’t matter. Buy this DVD!

AMAZING! After 20 years of waiting, Taxi fans can get also the first season episodes on DVD. It's not out yet, but Christmas is around the corner, so this is one thing I have on my wishlist. Unfortunately, these aren't my favourite Taxi episodes because Reverend Jim was not yet a character. Still, this will be an invaluable Taxi source for fans. Now, I'm just waiting for a DVD set of the first season of WKRP In Cincinnati to be completely satisfied.
